stayed a few days.
loved the stylish, chic interpretation of a Zanzibarian palace.
very simple with amazing use of colours to highlight the architecture.
the room we stayed in was very high, spacious and good view of the ocean
the hotel has an excellent position closed to the habour area & the evening food market.
the more interesting, ,upper end shopping areas (we are talking Stone Town standards here) are just behind the hotel. the roof top terrasse gives you a beautiful view in the morning for breakfast or for a sundowner.
the staff is very friendly & helpful, the managers an Italian couple - delightful!
